Invite you to a special screening of films on
LIVING WITH THE PARK – Ranthambore National Park
(English-30 Minutes) 6.30pm
The film is a look at the popular tiger reserve as an integrated universe comprising its animals and people in the adjoining areas.
The forests connects the two and neither one can flourish with the other.
So is the policy of segregating the park as a preserve for animals alienating the people who lived in harmony with the park for decades, helping the Park?
There are no quick answers. The film depicts the main attraction of the park the Bengal Tiger, which is in danger of getting decimated here, as it has already happened in Sariska.
Is it time we looked outside the park for the reasons, at the humanity which is living outside, their lives still connected to the Park – the people who are living with the park? Produced and directed by Dr. Susan Sharma-will be present
to introduce the film and take questions.
